Fodor's Review

Personable chef Adi Cohen has been serving the same classic dishes from his family's native northern Italy for a couple of decades—and they are still fantastic. The decor is understated and cheery, with bright yellow tablecloths, warm brick floors, and flowers in the windows. A starter menu includes great traditional dishes like ravioli (the stuffings change: look for seafood or truffles), and a superb lasagna and cannelloni combination. Especially interesting among

the entrées are the tender piccatina con funghi (thinly sliced veal with lemon and mushrooms), tournedo dello chef (beef with white wine, truffles, and porcini mushrooms) and tournedo Modena (beef with a balsamic vinegar and leek sauce). The house red wine is excellent, as is the homemade limoncello served at the end of the meal.
